According to team reporter Stu Jackson, the Los Angeles Rams have tested and given a large workload to WR Puka Nacua over the offseason.
Fantasy Impact: Nacua, a fifth-round pick out of BYU, could out-snap his draft capital early in his career. Nacua was a fairly productive WR in college at both BYU and Washington, but he fits well into the Rams’ system as a Robert Woods-esque player. The rookie has an aggression when run blocking and is a skilled runner with the football – rushing for five TDs in 2022 – that will help him see the field early in Sean McVay’s offense. The question for him in his rookie year isn’t whether he will see the field, it’s whether he will translate snaps to stats or if he’ll stay healthy, a struggle of his in college.
